Please give me your Irue answer, ir- respective of the effect on Ihe coffee business. Dear Reader I doubt the coffee business is going to shud- der very much from my an- swer.

Medical lexts describe "un- toward reactions" (meaiumg bad) Irom milligrams of caffeine, or about six or seven two cups can give yen a pretty good jolt. How much depends on how strong the coffee is and how strong the drinker is. A dose of caffeine of 150 to 250 milligrams stimulates the cor- tex of the brain, it speeds up typing performance and associ- ation of ideas. In other words, it turns one on. However, deli- cate muscular coordination may be hampered by Ihis dose. And .vou can get that much caffeine in one or two cups of coffee, again depending upon the brew. The bad aspect of coffee is its effects on the digestion of many people, causing an in- crease in stomach acidity with burning in the pit of the stom- ach. It should definitely not be used by anyone who has an ul- cer. It stimulates the heart and TODAY Ihcsc boys' Birlt- d a I e Mountie quilled nylon ski jackets are 11.98.

Tea abo contains caffeine, but the way it is brewed, the usual cup contains half as much as coffee. The best ap- proach is for the coffee lover lo switch to a decaffeinated prod- uct. This helps prevent "coffee nerves." (Newspaper Enterprise Assn.) vary in intensity. Apparently, a magnetic compass on the moon would go clear out of its mind. The earliest space probes failure to detect a magnetic field arcund the moon.Lalcr probes orbited closer to the surface and carried finer instruments. They reported areas of mild magnetic force and scientists suspected that the moon had a magnetic field about 100 times weaker than the earth's. Our planet's steady magnetism is estimated to measure about gamma equator. This units at the built-in force comes from a dynamic super magnet in the core of the planet. It reaches out around the earth in an enormous invisible field o' energy the magneto- sphere. The two poles of the in- terior dynamo are the opposite magnetic poles. AL present, our evidence on the moon's magnetism is very scanty and very, very bewilder- ing. Apparently it docs not go by the earht's orderly system at. all. The Apollo 12 and 14 missions set up sensitive man- to measure the magnetism on two samll areas of the moon. The roving Apollo 14 astronauts carried a port- able magnetometer. The first instrument promptly relayed a magneilc measurement of 38 gammas. Three days later il changed slightly as the moon swung into the earth's magne- Doctor's >vives unhappy in small-town setting lospherc. The portable unit, merely 110 miles from the first site, measured a 43 gamma spot and a 103 gamma spot. Scientists are computing Ibis data along with other evidence from space probes. Eventually they hope to make some sense of all the bewildering details. But at present they can merely guess the overall pattern and suggest only theories to explain the confusion. Obviously the moon's magnetism is patchy So far, we know that there are areas where magnetic force comes and goes. Both the per- manent and temporary patches are strongly influenced by the solar winds and perhaps also by the changing temperatures of (he lunar day and night. The evidence, of course, is in- complete until the patchy mag- netism has been charted over the entire lunar surface. De- tailed reports of Ihe variations in magnetic force also are needed. These studies will lake time. But certainly the moon's magnetic hodgepodge does not resemble the neat, dipolar magnetism of the earth. A s usual, the answer to one question leads lo the next one. And solving a big problem tends to solve several others along the way. It seems that the moon ir.ay have been in- tensely magnetic in the dim past. Perhaps it passed through the earth's or some other strong magnetic field. The an. swers to these questions prom- ise to help solve many past mysteries of the solar system. Meantime, there is no evidence that the modern moon has magnetic poles strong enough to govern Ihe needle of a mag- netic compass.

(Copyright Chronicle Publishing Co. 1971) BANFF (CP) The short- age of doctors in small, rural centres has been blamed in part on the wives of physicians who find themselves unhappy in such settings, says Dr. C. J. Varvis of Edmonton. Dr. Varvis, incoming Alherta Medical Association president, said .small communities have trouble keeping doctors and the problem is not a lack of money or facilities. ''0 v e r and over again we find it is the doctor's wife who isn't happy in the small town." he said in an interview at Ihc association's annual convention. "Naturally a doctor wants to live where he can happily raise his family He said that on a rec-for-scr- vice basis, small lown doctors have the advantage over their city colleagues and Jhat facili-! ties in smaller centres appear j adequate "even though they might not be ideal In some cases." However, Dr. Varvis admit- ted he had no advice for small town chambers of commerce asking themselves what, they can do lo keep their doctors.

A club was led, West followed the ten and dummy-played the queen which held. When the Jtinff dropped on the next round of clubs South claimed his ton- tract since Ihc dummy's hand was established. He lost only two spade tricks on the deal and scored a 600-point. profiL At the other table, the American player sitting in Ihe West seat opened the bid- ding with three .spades which completely stymied his oppo- nents. North was understand- ably reluctant to enter the proceedings at the four level, vulnerable, by bidding one of his suits and there was no nUicr call available. 3ln passed and so did East and South. North opened the ace of hearts and shifted to a diamond. South was in wilh the king and he alertly returned a heart which his partner ruffed.
